Zucchini with heat

Zucchini is a great weight loss addition to your meals. Due to it's high water content it has less than 100 Kcal per pound raw, so you literally can go crazy with it 🙂 Zucchini with heat goes well with air fried or oven baked potatoes and a dip or even over quinoa. Enjoy.

Prep Time: 3 min

Cooking Time: 6 min

Serves 1


  • 2 large zucchini (at least 450 gr)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar


Wash zucchini and grate them on a mandolin or a similar thickness type of grater to get thin slices.

Put them on a dry, heated saucepan, sprinkle garlic powder and chilli flakes and stir fry for about 3 minutes on high heat.

Then, add balsamic vinegar, mix well and stir fry for another 3 minutes. This will allow for the acidity to evaporate and the vegetables to caramelise.

Take off the heat and enjoy.
